    That stuff is such BS.

    Kiper also had us taking Robert Meachem a few years ago.

    But we have NOTHING after those 2 as WR's. Brad Smith isn't a receiver. Clowney clearly doesn't have the Jets confidence.

    Do we know how long Braylon is going to be here?

    I'm gonna make it simple. I TRUST our GM with whatever he decides to do.

    I tend to look at his mock drafts more as a 'big board'.

    I say its going to be either Brandon Graham or Golden Tate...if we go Tate then Norwood in the 2nd...if we go Graham in the 1st then Freddie my man Barnes later in the draft

    I think its hard to say because we simply don't know what players will unexpectedly drop in this years draft. To me the smart way to draft is have two or three priorities and then see what shakes out as our pick nears. I would target the Jets first round needs as of today as CB, DE, and possibly WR. If the world beating stud that is available at 29 is a WR then lets take him, if on the other hand its a CB, that looks the best lets go in that direction. Again to me its flexibility.

    I'm with you on this.

    Folks, we are a Super Bowl favorite heading into next year. Ususally, when that is the case, you do not have any glaring holes on your team. Couple that with the fact that we wont pick until the very end of the first round, then we simply must take the BPA.

    If BAP is a receiver I could live with the pick in round one. I am not sure that Tate would be BAP for our pick. Considering that our need is for a # 2 or # 3 guy, a receiver in round two would make a little more sense though.

    I wouldn't upset me, you can never have enough playmakers on the team. We currently do not have very many on that side of the ball.

    I want them to either continue to build upon a good defense to make it DOMINATING, or stock up on the lines, so they don't miss a beat when it's time for Faneca & Woody to retire.

    A team that is solid in the trenches will always be competitive.

    We have a knack for picking the best player available in our draft spot regardless of need, so I can see us taking him if he's available.

    I'd imagine if he doesn't run well at the combine that he might fall out the first round

    I think his stock will certaintly fall at the combine even if he runs ok. His size and other measurables are not 1st round.

    Its really a toss up between a DE and WR. We drafted 3 Offensive players last year and 0 defense but our WR core is not deep. We have Braylon and Cotch then nothing. Then our DEs are all really old and we could use some youth in their to build for the future. Who knows he could surprise us (kind of) and draft a safety. Id hate to be tanny right now making this decision.

    We gotta go for Tate in the first, and than find some hidden defensive gems in the mix. I know Tanny and Rex can find them.

    considering its early February, this pick is going to change 3 times.
